Sir Lindsay Hoyle begins work in his new role as Speaker in the House of Commons today - succeeding John Bercow who stands down after more than a decade.
He was dragged to the chair by Tory MP Nigel Evans and Labour's Caroline Flint.
He paid an emotional tribute to his late daughter, Natalie, in his acceptance speech.
Sir Lindsay also promised to be neutral and urged the House to regain its dignity.
"This House will change but it will change for the better," he said.
